Colombia: two miners killed by police during strike

Police attacked miners in the district of Irra, epicenter of the indefinite mining strike in Colombia, murdering two with gases. At least 40 children are hospitalized for the same reason. 

Miners in all Colombia are blocking railroad routes as part of the sectoral strike in demand of legal protection for small-scale mining. 

The farmer uprising in Cataumbo continues as well, with some 16,000 people taking part in road blockades and demonstrations.
